a huge final push in the battleground states. today president obama campaigns in ohio, wisconsin, iowa and virginia. mitt romney stumping in new hampshire, iowa, and colorado. they're running mates are also going nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington t
. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of the fascinating things about this election, the impact of the tea party on independent voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging toward mitt romney. president obama has had a decided edge among moderates. fascinating new division in the electorate that we're seeing playing out. >> stay here. we'll talk more about this. brianna keeler is in milwaukee. the president will be there later today. three days out. this is the final chance for the president to make his case to voters. what's the final message going to be? >> reporter: he's countering, ali, mitt romney's message where he is talkin
the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our
in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclusive to tell me why he feels so strongly why the president should leave the offic
much obama territory now? >> we think that it is. and all of the national -- or excuse me, the ohio public polls show that, yes, president obama is leading. he lost a little bit of ground, but he's made that back up again. one thing i would point out, chris, is that the obama campaign is seeing very different internal polling than the romney campaign is seeing is. republicans told me earlier this week that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaig
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
that. he's competitive in ohio. this is a dead heat. statistically a dead heat between romney and obama. very puzzling to hear how this is going over here. >> and just to add to that, the swing voters we're talking to here, there is a sense that this issue resonated. the front pages, the local newspaper here is about romney on the auto industry. >> people are mad. >> and it is registering as an unforced error. people take it very personally here, their jobs, their local economy is connected to the auto bailout and stimulus package according to the mayor here. >> yeah. and, john, listen, the president has a tough sell. it may be an easier sell for mitt romney and the reason i say that is because when everyone is running for president, they can say i'm going to do this. you heard mayor romney saying i'm going to open up the keystone pipeline, this and this and this and this. it is tougher for the president to say i'm going to do more of what we have been doing so the economy at least grows a little bit. so do you think, john, or -- either one of you guys, do you think voters get that part
president obama. 46% of ohio's likely voters support mitt romney. it is that close. and, of course, in ohio, every single vote is valuable. ballots are guarded and tracked with ferocious precision. but i got a behind the scenes up close look in one county to see how the ballots are actually counted. here it is. in person -- >> name, two forms of i.d., signature, looks good. >> reporter: or by mail, all ballots in hamilton county, ohio, end up here, election headquarters. >> so this is when the absentee ballots come back from the post office. we have the clerks who scan them back in and check them for making sure they're valid. >> reporter: processed by an army of staff, volunteers, and machines. norman jr.'s turn now. a brand-new machine named after the character in the movie psycho, because of this noise. norman scans, photographs, and separates ballots into precincts. >> we start with mail buckets and just toss them all in. >> reporter: are you happy to have this machine? >> with this many ballots, yes. >> reporter: now downstairs to the inspectors. this is it? >> this is it. this is wher
-- >> president obama has created jobs, particularly in ohio where we restored the auto industry. no one can take that away from this past administration, but what they can attribute to governor romney is let them go bankrupt, and also a misleading and distorting ad that tells not the truth but a distortion of that which is so unfair. they will vote the truth and the truth will set them free, and they will vote november 6th and be free. >> excellent, thanks so much to both of you. i appreciate it. of course, the drum beat carries on. just three days to go until election day. many discussions to be had before folks in large numbers hopefully make it to the polls. thanks so much to both of you. appreciate. >>> it's canceled for the first time in 42 years. talking about sunday's new york city marathon. critics were afraid the race would hurt the sandy recovery efforts. now runners have turned their attention from the race to those most in need. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only
is in colorado. tomorrow, president obama will be here in ohio. it's another of those battleground states we have talked about so much. cnn is in all of the hot spots. in colorado, we're live. you talked to "mountain mommas"? who are the mountain mommas. >> reporter: in political speak, they're the overcrowd. here, in this battleground state, a third of the registered voters are registered independents. drill that down even pfurther ad one of the key demos? suburban mothers. with the crunch of fall leaves beneath jogging strollers, this group of suburban colorado moms self-described "mountain mommas" hit their first lap chatting about the final leg in the race for president. >> i'm very torn. >> so you're undecided? >> i am definitely undecided. >> reporter: that makes tina the coveted surprise for both parties. >> knocks on my door, mail, to the tv ads. i put a note on my door that said "there are children napping in this house and i guarantee you you woent get my vote if you wake them up by knocking now" they're really bothering me. >> reporter: just listen to what the candidates have said viti
shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50 to 45. a tighter race in virginia. president obama at 49, mitt romney at 47, which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48 and mitt romney at 47. another statistical tie. tonight nate silver of the "new york times'" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 238 and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common ground. >> and the fight over who is the real friend of the auto industry continued today. >> the facts, the
hearing from the obama campaign about how they feel about ohio? >> reporter: well, you constantly hear about the poll numbers, the early vote. there are so many numbers being thrown out by this campaign, sometimes you feel like you're at the betting track. but the bottom line is, it's a confidence game by both sides and they do point out that yes, the president is consistently up even if it's within the margin of error, consistently up in every ohio poll you look at. and that they have the advantage with the ground game. and also, as we pointed out before with the auto bailout. that was a theme the president hit today in pretty stark terms. he really went after governor romney for that ad you and i have spoken about in the past where governor romney says that chrysler is going to make jeeps in china, and the president says that the ceos of these companies have asked governor romney to stop making the ad and that governor romney is trying to scare people. the president's top two advisors came to talk to the press and said this is back-firing on governor romney and people here don't like
, as you know that. president obama, mitt romney both spent the day in the state of ohio. romney gave a speech in wisconsin this morning before heading there, the president had rallies in three different cities in ohio. latest cnn/orc poll shows the president leading romney by just three points in ohio, razor-thin lead within the poll's margin of error. >> our national political correspondent jim acosta and white house correspondent jessica yellin. the candidates' messages are very different but their itinerary couldn't be more similar, could it? >> that's right. they are basically battling for the same swing states over the next three days, three final days of this campaign. mitt romney is in ohio right now, he goes to new hampshire tomorrow morning, then heads to iowa, colorado and later this weekend, heading into monday, he goes to virginia and florida. you know, anderson, you can lay the battleground map for president obama and mitt romney almost on top of one another, because their schedules are so similar. >> jessica, all year long, people have been pointing to this final jobs r
the president leading in six points. in ohio president obama leading by two points in one poll and by three points in another poll. in virginia president obama leading by one point. in florida president obama leading by two points. one state that's not a swing state this year but that president obama made into a swing state in 2008 is the great state of indiana. indiana flipped from red to blue in the presidential contest. president obama is not necessarily expected to pull off the same thing this year in indiana. but this year there's a really hot race in indiana in the senate. after a tea party primary cost senator richard lugar his senate job, the republican candidate in indiana ended up being the guy on the left side of your screen richard mourdock. he's up against a centrist moderate democrat named joe donnelly, the guy on the right side of your screen. since mr. mourdock said when women are raped and become pregnant as a result of that rape, that is something god intended, since he made those remarks at a debate in a few weeks ago, in very, very, very, very red state indiana, the repu
, it shows how much that auto bail out helps president obama with the voters in ohio and iowa. among non college white men in those states is higher than the other states anderson. >> hum, hinting. appreciate that. i spoke about that earlier. what is your biggest priority right now? >> well, getting power back up. i think we have done a good job on search and rescue. there may be elements of that. but the national guard has done a great job. getting lights on. changes people's quality of life and gets business up again and gets kids back into skuxt it is school. >> what was your meeting like with the president? >> great koocoordination with t state and the federal government and the administration. i said to the president we have to think outside of the box. can we use military transport. great, can we transport them in a c-130 can you help the utility companies get the sub station generating that would open up a lot of use. thinking outside of the box and cutting through the bureaucracy. >> do you have an idea of how when power would be restored? >> we have been on with the utility comp
more frayed. >>> four days to go, president obama arrives in ohio overnight and governor romney heads there as well as both camps brace for this morning's all-important jobs report and the impact of sandy looms large over election day. >>> and walk this way. new yorkers in need of a lift are about to get one on our plaza. the countdown has begun for aerosmith's first ever morning show concert today, friday, november 2nd, 2012. >>> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. this has been a hard week around here, but it's nice to have something to smile about this morning. aerosmith here on the plaza. >> a confession, i walked outside a second ago as they were rehearsing to see steve tyler behind a microphotograph and joe perry walking up and down the stage. this is just a destruction. the death toll from sandy has risen to more than 90 people. there's a lot of talk about the situation in new yor
house correspondent dan lothian is in mentor, ohio where president obama will be campaigning later this morning. dan, the crowds for 2012 have not been as big as the 2008 crowds. big turnout expected for his last campaign weekend though? >> reporter: oh, definitely. i mean, the white house says and the campaign rather says that the president has been facing in these recent days some fired up supporters. they expect the same to happen here in ohio today. we've been talking so much about the big push in the battleground states, but ohio being the most important, the president made three stops here yesterday. he'll be making two events or two stops in this state today, returning here again tomorrow. the campaign saying that the reason that they are making this big push here is not because they are concerned at all about losing ohio but because they believe that this is a very important state, and the big pitch from the president has been the auto industry and the bailout. the president talking about how his policies have helped to save a lot of jobs here and how mitt romney's vision i
, president obama has rallies planned between now and election day in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, virginia, new hampshire, florida and colorado. gloria borger is our chief political analyst. i'm out of breath running through the different states he'll be visiting. what do the maps tell you and things could change. what do you make of the fact romney won't be heading to florida? >> well, on the florida point, i was on the conference call with a few of his top advisers yesterday and they say they feel good about florida and a thing to look at and say, well, if he doesn't go back there and don't forget he was there just yesterday, he was there over the weekend and if he doesn't go back there, that may show a sense of optimism on the side of the romney camp. don't forget, they need florida just like they need ohio if they win this election. but if you look another those two maps generally, brooke, they're almost the same. they're going to the same battleground states because it's a same handful of states so close right now. you know, that they both need to keep visiting and visiting and visiting ag
, ohio, virginia, florida. you stop him in any one of those three states, president obama stays president. so that's the strategy. you don't want to bleed yourself so much, even with the amount of money both campaigns have, that you actually make it easier for the other side to make inroads. >> i'm out of time but i want to ask you each really, really quickly for your guy, on the democratic side, chris, where are we going to see the president going over the weekend, the last weekend of this campaign? >> that's obvious, ohio, ohio, ohio. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. how about you, robert? where is romney going? >> ohio and most likely he will end his campaign in new hampshire. new hampshire is still very much in play. and maybe hawaii. he might go to hawaii. i heard romney may go to hawaii. >> i'm going to give a shoutout to my bosses. hawaii for the weekend. chris, robert, give me a heads up if you hear anything about that. >> we'll pack our board shorts. >>> turning back to sandy, pope benedict xvi says he has been praying for those who have lost their lives and property because of the hurricane
to real people event, because, it just doesn't exist with this guy. the latest ohio poll shows romney trailing president obama badly on whether the candidate cares about the needs of people like you. president obama also leads on who is better at helping the middle class. president obama also leads romney by five points in ohio, in large part because romney's 47% problems just continue to haunt him. it is halloween, isn't it? let's bring in msnbc contributor, e.j. dionne, who is also a "washington post" columnist and author of the book, "our divided political heart." you know, this storm, as devastating as it is, e.j., it seems to have created some real problems for the romney campaign. it's almost as if you see them, and they are thing, and you can see them thinking out loud, oh, no, now what do we do? staging events. i mean, how low does it get? your thoughts? >> well, first of all, i would like to send my love out to my wife's family in rockaway queens, the neighborhood right on the ocean that got hammered. it's a great area and those folks are having a tough time right now. and i
week about ohio. without autos, without auto manufacturing, it would be very hard to see how the obama team can continue to have excitement and emotional momentum on their side in ohio. it could very well be that the car situation and the help that this administration provided could be the stonewall. however, you look at this momentum, and mike, you follow campaigns. you follow political efforts. and when you have this kind of momentum heading into the final week, it's got to be a good feeling for the romney campaign as they look at the last eight days of where they are. >> you know, usually in campaigns, joe, you know this better than any of us sitting here because you've been on the ballot. you get an indication four, five days out that something has tipped within one campaign or another. and it's set in motion. and so you sort of know who the winner will be. that's not the case this year. i fall back on something that you keep hearing repeatedly when you're out there talking with people, that the president of the united states somehow -- well, we know how -- did himself irreparable
. with just four days to go, president obama is focusing on, where else? where do you think he went? ohio. he's making stops there every day between now and tuesday. he'll also be in virginia, florida, new hampshire, iowa, colorado and wisconsin over the next 96 hours. mitt romney will be in many of those same states over the next four days, although he's hitting pennsylvania and skipping florida. president obama was back on the trail yesterday after a three-day break to oversee the storm recovery. rallying to a crowd of 10,000 in colorado. the president made what some are saying was a jab at his opponent's tendency to change his mind. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bailout, only 10% of the country approved of it. including, by the way, folks in michigan and ohio. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> mit

has begun and it has come down to ohio which president obama and mitt romney will visit six times in the last four days of the race. today, president obama will spend the entire day in ohio. but a look at the rest of the campaign schedule makes the buck eye state look like an airline hub for air force one, with ohio stops every day through election day. for his part, mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but hoping to win over wisconsin, and looking to broaden the battleground map, campaigning in pennsylvania sunday, visiting new hampshire twice. the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. in these frenetic final days, they're sharpening the closing argument to voters. mr. obama arguing for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> mr. romney calling himself the agent of change. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i am elected presiden
